No Holmes Beach commission meeting

The Holmes Beach city commission meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. yesterday was canceled, postponing a discussion on a request by Sean Murphy for an expansion of a non-conformity at 101 67th St., the Beach Inn Motel.

The expansion would move the sliding glass doors of each of the 14 units 13 feet toward a new lobby, expanding the rooms and allowing the bathrooms to be upgraded.

The present internal courtyard would be converted to an enclosed, two-story lobby. A total of 2,885 square feet would be added to the property, of which 900 square feet would be lobby.

The planning commission recommended approval of the request by a 4-0 vote on Jan. 26.

At the planning commission hearing, Building Official Bill Saunders said the request does not contravene the city codes or the comprehensive plan.
